Chargé d'Affaires Clark Price and Consul General Thatcher Scharpf visit Heraeus Group headquarters in Hanau

Chargé d’Affaires Clark Price und Consul General Thatcher Scharpf visited the Heraeus Group headquarters in Hanau to meet with Chairman Jan Rinnert and the Hereaus Head of Vocational Training, Karin Saar.
Heraeus has business units that focus on everything from precious metals to medical technology in 40 countries worldwide, including the United States, but it’s their long-standing investment in a world-class training facility and their unique apprenticeship programs for more than 20 different professions that was most impressive.
CdA Price and CG Scharpf discussed what parts of the dual education system Heraeus Group might replicate in their U.S. facilities, particularly their hub in Minneapolis where they help customers design, develop and produce medical devices. #ApprenticeshipWeek #NAW2021
